Genesis 12:3 (NKJV)
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.
Ever wondered what all the fuss is, about Israel? Is the modern-day state of Israel the one in the Bible? What were the historical events resulting in the ongoing conflicts in the region? Which biblical prophecies about Israel have been fulfilled in our day?
Why does the US stand by this tiny state of almost 9 million people and in May this year move its embassy to Jerusalem in the face of worldwide criticism and violent protests from Israel’s neighbours? And why are there so many UN resolutions regarding this state? Is the two-state solution biblical and will peace ever be achieved? Should Israel leave the “occupied territories”?
I found this starter kit easy to read providing a quick upgrade to my knowledge of the issues. It is a handy reference to an insight into complex matters such as Replacement Theology and Christian anti-Semitism.
Ultimately, it is a much-needed read to establish our own personal response to “the apple of God’s eye”. As we understand the biblical perspective of the role and significance of Israel for us as believers, and how the nation fits into God’s plans in the end days, the result must lead to an urgent desire to stand with and pray for Israel.
